Random Draw

Allowing the students to participate in reading and answering questions is a great way to keep them involved. Students do not always volunteer for these opportunities; so try calling on students randomly. They are more likely to be alert and more engaged if they do not know when they will be called on. To make this fun, write each student’s name on a small object, such as a card or craft stick, and place them all in a container. After asking a question, draw a name to determine who will answer it. Return the object to the container and mix them up for the next question or duty.
